My Challenge to the Washington Post ( Sarah Palin )

My Challenge to the Washington Post

To reclaim your credibility (and the mainstream media’s, at large), I challenge you to engage in the same aggressive investigative journalism you courageously employed 42 years ago covering President Nixon. The public knows of our current president’s incompetence, denials, and cover-ups, but would be well served if we could count on your resources to dig deep for truth in all matters pertaining to Team Obama.

One example: your reporters kept tracking an obscure break-in story and that led to revealing a grave problem in the White House. The Washington Post’s reputation soared as the model of good journalism. Today, you’ve fallen like a lead balloon. Whereas you once doggedly covered the 18.5 minute gap in Nixon’s White House communications, you’ve virtually ignored the Obama Administration’s 1.2 million minutes of deleted communications by just one of the agencies under Obama’s executive branch. I’m speaking of the Lois Lerner IRS harassment-of-conservatives scandal wherein Lerner “lost” pertinent email communications. You’ve allowed Obama to skate with his proclamation that absolutely no wrongdoing occurred at the IRS, “not even a smidgen.”

The list of Obama abuses and impeachable offenses is long. I challenge you to lift a finger and help protect democracy, allow justice for all, and ensure domestic tranquility by doing your job reporting current corrupt events fairly. If not, you prove yourselves incompetent and in bed with Obama, not caring one iota about media integrity.

Those running the Washington Post’s show now, compared to those during the Nixon era, are too afraid of being uninvited to the permanent political class’ cocktail parties and petty gossip fests, making you all a bunch of wusses. I challenge you to get to work.

It gives an opportunity to call out the reporters of the Washington Post, and put them on the defensive. In dead tree journalism, that would not work. In the Internet age, it could lead to very interesting dialogues, anywhere, anytime and viral immediately.
Sarah can start interviewing reporters, on the record, live.

I have always loved Sarah. I am thrilled that her kids all seem to be doing well. Bristol is quite the firebrand. Loves her son and is becoming a lovely well spoken young lady. I follow her on facebook and so impressed with her. That family took a lickin and kept on tickin! I do pray for the family every day and when I see something that she has posted because I know she is under constant spiritual attack. Romans 12:12

My challenge to the WaPo:

1. Do your best to run this bozo out on a rail or
2. Book a flight IAD-SNA, drive up the 405 to the 91 to Imperial Highway to 18801 Yorba Linda Boulevard, walk up to the grave and apologize to President Nixon.

Agree 100 percent. Many pray for her and I have to believe she knows that.

Anybody catch Sarah Palin on the Michael Medved program about 20 minutes ago? I’d like to post it, but it’s a radio show and even if that’s possible I wouldn’t begin to know how. But it was so thrilling. I had just walked in from doing some errands and turned on the radio. She called on the regular caller line. Medved is very anti-impeachment and had also suggested that Sarah Palin is doing this to get publicity for her new TV channel. She not only defended the impeachment position but challenged him head on for saying that she was doing it for publicity. This made my day. This is why I like Sarah Palin no matter what people say about her.
